Great food! Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great sake and suggestions.
The service staff were very nice but the service was very slow. It took 30 minutes to get our food. Disappointing.
The food was incredible, and the service was fantastic as always. They’re hqndling the Covid business operations perfectly.
I have always enjoyed Moto-I for any occasion. I found the staff lovlely
Excellent Food! Excellent Service! We appreciated the very thoughtful and thorough COVID practices.
The menu has been abridged since the pandemic, but the menu is still diverse and offers vegetarian options, which were much appreciated.
Best ramen in town by far!! Classic ramen, moto mule, rangoons are the best!
Really loved our Valentines Day dinner at Moto-I! Our server was really knowledgeable on the menu and the Sake. The food was great :)
We went here for the first time on valentines day and absolutely loved everything
The food, service and sake were phenomenal!
They have a great system in place regarding covid precautions, and the service was incredible! Lots of beautiful plants adding to the ambiance.
Exceptional mushroom Ramen. Best I've ever tried. Love this place!
Was nice to get back to the restaurant again. Always amazing food, paired with amazing service. And the popcorn... a must have.
The best meal I’ve had in a long time! Plus incredible service, great COVID protocols, and affordable for the quality of food and location.
Great food! Music could be different, doesn’t match the ambiance but otherwise, it’s great service and food.
Always a good experience
Excellent service, food, atmosphere. A bit pricey, but understandable during Covid.
The food and service here is always phenomenal, my partner and I love coming whenever we are in the cities. The original ramen and okonomoyaki are our favorites!!!
I’m always so impressed with this place. So thank you for making us feel safe during this pandemic. They have a new system where the server doesn’t come to your table as much, (you can buzz for them when needed.) I think it’s wonderful. That way they limit their interactions with people.
Also the server was so sweet, they didn’t like the look of our Rangoon’s that we ordered, (which myself and my partner though they looked good to us.) so the server put in another order for us on the house! Everything was wonderful, and we will be coming back!
I found the lady who seated up to be kind of off putting. But other than that, the service was excellent! I loved our waitress. Defiantly could get more for your value though! But the food was very authentic and tasty.
Moto-I has quickly become on of my favorite spots in uptown! Service is always amazing and the food never disappoints. So glad they are open again and they keep everything very clean and follow guidelines to keep their staff and customers safe!
Great food, and a nice quite atmosphere. Our waiter came around often enough that we got what we needed, but not so often we felt annoyed. This is one of many times I've come to MOTO-I, and will keep coming back because their food is amazing (try the fries) and their service is equally as impressive.
Food was great, service was great. Only complaint was kind of dark in the restaurant.
One of the best restaurants in MN. Great food great service.
Food was extremely delicious and, I'm assuming because of the covid regulations, it was a quiet, relaxing dinner. Steamed buns are unreal good.
This is my absolute favorite restaurant in the cities. All of the servers are so friendly and knowledgeable. Drinks are AWESOME, food exceeds all expectations. So many vegan friendly options and they’re so conscious of allergies. Moto-i is our favorite place and I highly recommend it for a date night, friendly outing, or even drinks and apps.
Very nice service, excellent food, with many great options for vegetarians. Everyone in our group had a wonderful time. Will return.
Super delicious and authentic ramen. Definitely suggest the sake!
Great dinner. One of my favorite spots in Minneapolis.
One of our favorites, always amazing food!
My favorite Japanese place in the Twin Cities. Such amazing flavors and execution. I have Japanese friends visiting who have been very impressed. Ambience and service are very nice but also friendly and down to earth.
We made a reservation for a party of 4, 3 of whom are in wheelchairs. My husband and I went early to give them a heads up to make sure we could find an accessible table. The manager and staff went above and beyond, moving a lower table into a more accessible space for us and ensuring all three chairs would fit with room to move. I would give them 10 stars if I could. The manager was more then accommodating to our mobility needs and the staff was attentive and on point the whole meal. The food is also phenomenal and reminded me of my grandmothers traditional cooking!
Went there for restaurant week and got the wagyu bulgogi ramen. Can't tell if it wagyu since it's soaked in the broth. However, it was flavorful and the side of panko fried poached eggs were excellent addition. The JFC wasn't unique enough for me to order it again. In house distilled sake was excellent. Overall lunch exceeded $100.
Best ramen in the Twin-Cities, hands down. I would also recommend the steamed buns.
I love Moto-I. It's an iconic location in Uptown Minneapolis. Great food, great drinks, great people. Check it out!
Always good. Music is one of my favorite pieces of the ambiance. Sake, A Bun, and Mushroom Ramen is always my go to.
Wonderful service. Delicious drinks and the food is always amazing.
Fantastic as always! Grateful to have such a gem in our community.
Wonderful food, drinks, and service!
Awesome place and all the food was amazing. I wish I could've tried every dish. Definitely will come back.
